Travel has changed my life and Airbnb has changed how I travel. Since I joined Airbnb in 2012, my partner and I have stayed in wonderful homes in San Francisco, Chicago, Montreal, Amsterdam, and Victoria, BC. I love being in neighborhoods and meeting local people. And, while I currently can't be a host, I convinced my best friend from high school to host people in her beautiful apartment in Long Beach (and she loves it).
When I'm not extolling the virtues of Airbnb or traveling, I am most likely watching a movie, reading a book, or listening to music. I love great architecture and the great outdoors. I love museums and matinees. I enjoy both high-culture and the low-brow. And, I'm an easy-going and conscientiousness guest—when I'm in your house, I treat it as well as I treat my home.
